Description auywy 2006-10-30 05:46:12 UTC
Description of problem:
Heavy compilation task - compiling KDE3.5.5 via Konstruct at console (init 3), 
no X runnning. After a while, either

(a) Lock-up. Cannot switch to other tty via Alt+F1-F4. No message captured by 
klogd or syslogd.


(b) PC reboots automatically.(!)

To date, occurence ratio is like (a) - 35 times. (b) - 15 times. Only twice has 
the console printed the following message before lock-up.

<not sure if there is anything above this because of lockup>
EIP: oo60[<c041a59a>] Tainted:P VLI
EFLAGS: 00010094 (2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 #1)
EIP is at resched_task +0x11/0x5f


Process cc1plus (pid: 5509, ti=cdc47000 task=dfea6070 task.ti=cdc47000)

<...snip leftover inexact backtrace...>
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC6 core, default kernel 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.
Gigabyte GA-945GM-S2 (Intel 945G+ ICH7 chipset)
Intel Core 2 Duo E6300

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Obtain Konstruct from http://developer.kde.org/build/konstruct/stable/
2. Edit gar.conf.mk to suit the platform.
3. cd meta/kdepim-crypto and make install.

Additional info:
I have not tested fc6 daily usage at all - just trying to test a shiny new core 
2 duo performance by giving it a big compilation task. :P Maybe this is 
reproducible for any big enough compilation task.

Have tested memory with memtest - no problems. Tried swapping around memory 
modules. Checked CPU temperature at bios after a lockup or auto-reboot - 
remained in the 35-40+ degrees range. Tried passing maxcpus=1 to kernel at 
boot. Tried many enabling/disabling various bios options. Problem still 

klogd is running at the fc6 default of klogd -x. Have edited syslogd.conf to 
log kernel messages to /var/log/kernel - but nothing useful captured.

problems with binary modules loaded aren't debuggable.
